AJ Bagwell is a Storm Tracker with Texas Weather Tracker TV and also the Field Technical Director. AJ grew up outside of Lubbock, Texas in tornado alley and has had a interest in storms since a very young age. AJ encountered his first tornado around age 6 while he was on a trip with his dad near Midland, Texas. Little did he know at the time that this experience would fuel a life long passion and respect for Mother Nature and storm chasing. As one of the founding members of the 806 Storm Chasers, AJ is experienced in chasing in West Texas and throughout the Panhandle. After relocating to the DFW area in 2016, AJ joined forces with the North Texas Storm Spotters and has grown a lot as a storm chaser through learning to chase and navigate in more metropolitan areas. He frequently chases with his wife, Erin who typically does the driving while AJ navigates and checks radar. When he’s not chasing, AJ can be found spending time with his wife and two dogs, playing video games, hanging out at the lake, hunting, fishing, shooting photography, scuba diving, watching NASCAR, or tinkering in his garage.
